Studying Vermeer


And more for today :) I cannot do any more

till the paint dries , so I will leave this for a few days.

This is todays update

Vermeer was a Dutch artist in the 16oo's, he painted portraits
and interior scenes.
I have always loved " Girl With Pearl Earring" so yesterday
in the heat of summer, 34c inside :P , I decided to study

this painting by Vermeer and do my own version.

I started with an acrylic underpainting , then

proceeded with oils.
Still on the easel, with more work to be done, but I really

am enjoying this very much.

We can learn so much from the Old Masters and their

methods of painting.
